This is a normal post I don't. And I sincerely don't care about them as individuals.
However they did post a picture of themselves with an in utero scan on social media. The BBC reproduced this picture as news. As men, I have deduced, neither has a womb. This makes the story unusual, and therefore noteworthy. It seems to me you think it isn't unusual. I think that's where we differ.

This is a normal post Not true. I care only in that it is highly unusual, yet people disingenuously engage in the Doublethink that it isn't. And almost certainly prohibitively expensive without an egg donor and free surrogacy.
I just Googled the other one. He wrote the screenplay for Milk. So at least one of them has done something worthwhile.

This is a normal post it's not really, in Western societies, in 2018

This is a normal post Hell of a qualification there, 'in Western societies', but we've finally found where we disagree.
I believe that approximately less than 1% of all children are in some way are the offspring of a gay couple. Being in that approximately 1% group qualifies one as being highly unusual. You disagree. The end.

This is a normal post 1% is still ~7,000 babies a year

This is a normal post Why don't just call me a racist cunt and be done with it?
Anyway I didn't say 1%, I said less than 1%, an obscure and obtuse nuance I now realise.

This is a normal post You'll feel different when they are people you know.
Friends of the family are in a gay marriage, neither has a penis but yet they have an 8 year old son together. I've never felt the urge to ask them where the spuff came from, or even who's egg it was. None of my business as far as I am concerned. They're amazing parents and the lad is exceptionally bright, polite and well balanced.

This is a normal post But you didn't read about them in a national newspaper.
The issue here is the woeful quality of the reporting, not the fact that two married guys are starting a family together.

This is a normal post I agree there, the reporting is atrocious, "They have not revealed any more details about the pregnancy, including whether or not a surrogate is involved."
I would have wanted to see the BBC list all the other options they had whilst holding up the ultrasound.

This is a normal post That line wasn't in the original article.
It originally read as if they had somehow reproduced without the aid of a third party.

This is a normal post The first thing I say about the subject at 15:33 is that it's a news story based entirely and exclusively on a social media post.
I realise you're determined to dishonesty misrepresent as a homophobe, please don't pretend to know what I think.

This is a normal post no the first thing you said at 15:24 was 'this isnt normal or natural'

This is a normal post You're reading sarcasm into that remark. Well done Benny.
Less than 1% of parents do this, ergo it is not normal. I think we can take as read there was some kind of medical intervention, IVF or equivalent, ergo not natural. Neither is a criticism or judgment, just an observation. Stop pretending something unusual is normal.

This is a normal post All of that is true.
You've misinterpreted me. I'd still be curious about the biological parentage but wouldn't ask out of politeness though.
However I think if you scream "Look at me! Look at me!" by posting on social media because you're a reality TV star and professional attention seeker, such glaringly obvious questions are perfectly reasonable.
